8 Under $20: Last Minute NYE from Forever 21

Hard to believe that in only 2 days we'll be ringing in the new year and it'll have been a decade since all that Y2K mumbo jumbo. I know; that whole "only 2 days" thing freaked me out, too. Not because I'm not ready for 2010, but because I'm not ready for NYE.

8 Under $20: Sephora

So if you're like me, part of the fun of being a girl is getting all beautified and purtied up. I mean, beyond the fun that is playing with makeup, what's the point of putting together a cute outfit if your skin looks dry, your hair looks flat and you smell like a thrift store?

8 Under $20: Get Ready For The Holiday Parties!

So Hanukkah begins on Friday and Christmas is 17 days away, which means it's time for holiday parties, dinners, and gatherings of family and friends. And that means you'll need some super cute looks to show off.

8 Under $20: Alloy

I'll be honest: I always thought Alloy was for the 12-17 age group, but then I started flipping through their merchandise and realized that they have a ton of cute stuff for us more sophisticated ladies. I mean, how could you not love this dress!?

8 Under $20: Victoria’s Secret

If I know one thing it's that girls who only shop at Victoria's Secret for the bras/panties/sexy lingerie are really missing out. That Vicki has a lot more to offer than lacy underthings that make your boobs look huge; Victoria's Secret is also an awesome place to stock up on clothes, shoes and beauty products. They even have jeans that give your butt some lift!

8 Under $20: Payless

It's really no secret that Payless carries a bevy of cute, stylish and affordable shoes these days, especially with designers like Lela Rose, Alice + Olivia and Christian Siriano designing for them. But did you know they also carry a slew of frugalista-friendly accessories

8 Under $20: Anique Michelle

God, what did we ever do without the internet? Besides the amazingness that comes from sites like this, there's online shopping. And it rules! You can get all your favorite things without leaving the house and online stores can charge less for all of it since they don't have to spend all that extra money on actual storefronts. That means lots of fabulosity without spending lots of money.

8 Under $20: Tilly’s

I'm pretty sure there is nothing better in life than a really fantastic sale section. Especially at a store stocked with things you already love. Take home some awesome finds on the cheap? Yes please! Much like Urban Outfitters and Express, Tilly's is chock full of really cute stuff at a somewhat "affordable" price. But it is in their fabulous sale section where you really hit the fashion jackpot.

8 Under $20: Express

So, Express isn't cheap. That is pretty obvious when you walk in and the hot shirt your eying for your birthday party is marked at $49. But every few months, they have a major sale. And I mean major. The kind that makes you giddy and happy and willing to sift through giant over-stuffed racks because the deals are just. that. good.

8 Under $20: Karma Loop

Thanks to the tips of a fellow CollegeCandy writer (thanks Cristina!), I have discovered a website I never knew existed. After getting over the fact that I was forced to live this long sans this site, I embraced the new find and I'm loving it! It's called Karma Loop and they have a great selection of some awesome brands.

8 Under $20: Urban Outfitters

I have a love/hate relationship with Urban Outfitters. I fall madly in love with everything on the racks, but hate how much they charge for shirts, skirts and dresses that usually fall apart after a few go-rounds in the washing machine. But then I fall in love again when those trendy little Urban employees stock the sale racks with all that gorgeous goodness.

8 Under $20: Delia*s

Ok, so Delia*s may not seem like the best place to find some threads once you're out of high school, but if you look in the right places, it's a wardrobe gold mine. They have some great basics, even better accessories, and a lot of their stuff is trendy on the cheap (especially if you check out their seasonal clearance/sale).

8 Under $20: JC Penney

The recession is bad news for anyone looking to get a job, save some money or sell a house. But it's great news for fashionistas! Stores that were once dowdy and just screamed "crazy cat lady" are bringing in new designers to create chic lines at lower prices.
